Welcome to the Homepage of the Global South Studies Center Cologne!
The Global South is characterised by rapid socioeconomic, cultural and political change whose impacts are felt throughout the world.
Typical signs of the upheavals involved include increasing economic interconnectedness, growing social inequality and destruction of natural resources. The countries worst affected are those long labelled ‘developing’ countries from a Northern perspective. The GSSC aims to investigate and highlight possible causes and consequences of these processes of change.
